Red Cross seeks volunteer in Springfield
to coordinate community blood drives
SPRINGFIELD, Neb. (June 26, 2017) — The American Red Cross is currently looking for someone to fill the role of volunteer blood drive coordinator for the Springfield community blood drives.
“Throughout the Red Cross, volunteers contribute in countless ways, including leadership roles, serving military and civilian families, responding to emergencies, donating blood, coordinating blood drives and more,” said Blair Bonczynski, Donor Recruitment account manager. “The Red Cross could not operate without the tireless efforts of volunteers.”
The ideal blood drive coordinator will be a dedicated individual who wants to give back to the community and is organized, personable and motivated to take the helm. The right volunteer for this position must be comfortable with customer service skills, willing to greet blood donors and socialize while providing care post-donation, make phone calls to schedule donor appointments and fulfill behind-the-scenes organizational duties. Individuals must be willing to commit to 10 to 15 hours for each blood drive, five times a year.

QUEST FOR ‘SPAMALOT’ AT
LOFTE COMMUNITY THEATRE
King Arthur and his knights are on a quest to find the Holy Grail and their search begins at the Lofte Community Theatre!
The Broadway smash, ‘Monty Python’s SPAMALOT’ opens on the Lofte stage Friday, July 21. The stage musical is lovingly ripped from the 1975 cult classic film, “Monty Python and the Holy Grail.” Winner of three Tony Awards, ‘SPAMALOT’ retells the legend of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table. But, in true Monty Python style, their adventure takes a silly spin. The production features beautiful show girls, cows, killer rabbits, plague-ridden peasants and rude Frenchmen. ’SPAMALOT’ originally ran on Broadway for three years and was seen by more than two million people. Popular songs from the show include, “The Song That Goes Like This,” and “Always Look on the Bright Side of Life.”
Directed by Kevin Colbert, the production features Chris Berger of Louisville as King Arthur and Catherine Bobst of Lincoln as Lady of the Lake. In 2016, they played leads Harold Hill and Marian Paroo in the Lofte’s production, “The Music Man.” Sir Lancelot is played by Wade Mumford of Lincoln. Aaron Spracklin of Elmwood shines as Sir Galahad. Brave Sir Robin is brought to life by Matthew Parker of Papillion and Lowgaen Schmidt of Louisville is the humble Sir Bedevere.
“These are some of the best voices in the area,” said Colbert. “We’ve got a great cast and that should translate into a great show this summer. Python is sort of check-your-brain-at-the-door humor, so folks can come and just laugh.” Colbert does mention that there is some mild adult humor and suggests a PG-13 rating.
Show dates for ‘SPAMALOT’ are July 21-23, 27-30 and August 4 and 5. Tickets are $19. Sunday, August 6 is already sold out so those interested in tickets should make their reservations soon. The Lofte is also offering a Medieval themed pre-show luncheon, complete with games and entertainment available for purchase on Sunday, July 23 and 30. Advance reservations are required for the meal. The Lofte box office can be reached at 402.234.2553, or tickets can be purchased online at Lofte.org.
